Trump is scheduled to deliver the State of the Union Address in a joint session of the US Congress on February 5.

“The President will make a significant announcement, I think, in the State of the Union next week with respect to the status of the caliphate, the real estate, the grounds from which ISIS had been operating in Syria when this administration came in,” Pompeo told Fox News in an interview.

Pompeo also informed that Trump would host foreign ministers of the “Global Coalition to Defeat the ISIS” and have discussions with them.

“You remember prisoners in cages, people kneeling on the beaches and being beheaded. This was tragic. Next week on February 6, he is hosting foreign ministers of the “Global Coalition to Defeat the ISIS” for an in-depth discussion on defeating them,” he said.

Pompeo said that President Trump will do everything to keep America safe from threats.

“President Trump has made clear it is a priority for him, and as the Secretary of State, I can promise the American people we will continue to do all that we can to keep them safe from this threat,” Pompeo said.

On Thursday, Pompeo met with Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne, during which they exchanged information on developments connected to the planned, phased withdrawal of US troops from Syria now that the ISIS Caliphate has been defeated.
